Chenille plant grows best in full sun to partial shade but avoid planting it outdoors where it receives direct sun in the late afternoon. As a houseplant, grow it in a greenhouse or place it near a south-facing window where it will receive ample year-round light.


Chenille plant grows in a range of soils, including sand, clay, and loam, but this plant isn’t suited to xeriscapes or seaside gardens because it's only moderately drought-resistant and is not salt-tolerant. Chenille plant can adapt to soil pH values between 6.0 to 7.5.


Keep your plant consistently moist as it establishes itself, and then maintain moderate moisture throughout the season. It's a good idea to check the soil every two to three days and apply water before the soil dries out completely. While this plant likes soil damp to the touch, overwatering to the point of soaking might kill it.

Temperature and Humidity

Chenille plant won't deny its tropical origin and will pout in temperatures below 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
